Casual, though I imagine the inclusion of jeans won't be a hit.

Thanks C - The square (as Nii notes below) is a contrasted edge one... although 2 pocket squares is something I never thought of.. should have been in the sprezz challenge

Thanks CP - How you holding up in the deep freeze?

Nice tie, but you need a bit of work on the PS fold (should fill up the whole pocket) and the double FIH.. you need a deeper dimple.

Can I ask how old you are? Im curious. PM if you want.

Make sure you visit my impending sales thread then.

Much obliged, brother.

Although I see you are having some fun with colored shoelaces... I went through that patch this past summer. Its a treacherous line to walk... and I found that only sometimes I fell on the right side of it.

Two pocket squares is too much IMO but I'm too conservative for my own good and you should never ever listen to me

Shoe details? Love the wholecuts!

Thanks! Shoes are C&J Edgware, not wholecuts though

the patch pockets though, i'm not a fan ... they are not proportional to the overall length of the jacket. looks off to my eye.

Right on the square, and I get you on the patches.. although the fit of the jacket is so perfect, I dont mind them so much.

I like 1, but I would have gone with a dark navy or an eggplant purple personally.

BLASPHEMY! To the lions.

Thanks Spoozer - for your fit today, I also learned that orange pants are not the easiest thing to pull off... this would have been good with something a few shades darker.

Otherwise, I love this. The colors sit very well together. I'm gonna wear my PS like that tomorrow.

Oops, I'm contemplating which pair of wholecuts to buy out of a couple of options so I have them on my mind. (Also, I wore my C&J weymouths today)

Regardless of my stupidity I like the shoes

You are right... they do sit low, as Nii mentioned, but it does not bother me so much. They do though, good eye. The jacket was not shortened. Pics of the PS when you do it!

Berluti, clearly is the answer.

Crust, it's not the fact that your clothing is so loud"”my outfits are usually louder. It's just the way it all comes together that often seems overwhelming, just too much color, too much bling, too much coordination, etc. But this, this is another story. This is the best I've seen you thus far. This is excellent. Also, out of curiosity, where do you get your hats? JJ? Bancraft? I need to know....

Same as a FIH, but you need to start the tail shorter, and just wrap it once more around, before through. I was going to do a pic tutorial, but I cant get good enough shots

Thanks to Spoo I now know that all the other wholecuts I have been looking at pale in comparison to Berluti wholecuts and feel inadequate
